Down South









We've been down south for the past couple of weeks. Can I just say again that babies are not meant to be raised by one mama alone in their home. It makes such a difference having mr k around to help take care of our bubba.  We stayed in a little cottage by the sea enjoying ourselves and each other. Our days began with cuddles in bed, lovely lunches at wineries or picnics on the beach, afternoon naps for everyone and freshly caught fish and squid on the barbie for dinner. Heaven.

What made it even more special is that miss S is now sleeping through from 6.30 at night until 7 the next morning. I dithered about whether writing this because I may jinx myself and also because I didn't want to make other mamas feel bad if their little one isn't sleeping through.  I do believe in people's innate goodness tho' and I feel excited when someone tells me about their little one sleeping through. It gives me hope. miss s has fed every 3 -4 hours since she was born which means I haven't slept more than 3 hours for over 7 months. I can't tell you how much clearer my brain feels now.

May everyone have a good nights sleep tonight (whether you are a mama or not:)
